Extended Length Socket Pins

Post by RWLTOK » Sun Aug 04, 2019 2:24 pm

I would like to use the PyBoard in a project where I plug it into a board that I am designing. I would like to know of a part number or manufacture that makes extended versions of the rounded socket pins that come with the PyBoard. I want to keep the option of adding shields to the PyBoard so I don't want to use square type pins. If anyone knows of a component, please reply.

I just did, isn't standard 0.100" (2.54mm) header??
I was using those.

Or are you after stackable headers?

I'm puzzled by the reference to "square" units. The headers supplied with Pyboards are turned pin headers which are regarded as high quality, but square pin headers work fine too. I have used them to enable a Pyboard to plug into sockets on a PCB while also enabling connections to be made from the component side.
